UKIP will not field a candidate in the 2017 General Election in Lichfield and Burntwood. The deadline for nominations for the June 8 vote passed yesterday (May 11). The Conservatives, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party will now fight it out alone for the seat. All four parties have opted to run with the same candidates as they did two years ago:
  • Chris Worsey (Labour)
  • Michael Fabricant (Cons)
  • Paul Ray (Lib Dem)
  • Robert Pass (Green)
UKIP came third in the 2015 General Election when John Rackham won 8,082 votes. Full details of polling station locations have also been confirmed for the election.

  1. A true loss for such a great and valiant party in the local area.

    At least we still have the decency of Michael to win. I cheer for the days I can return to the greatest of greenbelts and hunt those pesky foxes.

    Roll on another win for the greatest, and oldest, party in the uk

  2. Fabricant won’t be a good representative for all the rancid Kippers crawling back under their stones and voting Tory. He won’t go on about anything much frankly, except sycophantic questions to cosy up to whoever is Tory leader. You’ll probably have to hang around Waitrose late on Friday’s to catch sight of him anywhere in the constituency.
